What’s your favourite DIALOG initiative?
Discover DIALOG. The opportunity to keep learning and exploring within our own studios is fantastic.

Where do you find inspiration?
I find inspiration everywhere! Social, political and economic circumstances are my guideline to creating the spaces that will truly improve the wellbeing of our communities.

What’s your favourite mode of transportation?
My horses! I am lucky enough to live in the foothills of the Alberta Rocky Mountains. Horses have been my passion since I was a child. Aside from that I prefer my own two feet as it best allows me to observe and understand the environment I am in.

Designing spaces is a passion for me. Knowing that my creativity can have a positive impact on people's lives is the most motivating part of my profession.
